  • Now what? doh!

    3/17/2018 7:46:48 AM, by RAWCOOKIE

    Well, he did reply - after 48hrs. Is that acceptable? Seems a long time to me. He was sorry he couldn't join me at parkrun, he was working. I went to parkrun, I ran, it was great. I've told him when the next date is - if he wants to join me. So - the invitation has been moved to another da... Read more

  • Do it anyway!

    3/15/2018 2:11:48 AM, by RAWCOOKIE

    Thank you for your comments yesterday. The first comment, from JUSTFURKIDS got me thinking. A 'play-date'? Hmm, not something I'm familiar with and wasn't an idea I immediately warmed to - I mean, what? how? when? where? However, it set me off in the right direction! Thank you, Carol! Al... Read more

  • Emotional healing

    3/14/2018 2:34:31 PM, by RAWCOOKIE

    I've been thrown acutely into the emotional bull-ring this month. Firstly, I was asked out on a date for the first time in about............ um............ several years. This felt wonderful, and I had a couple of really lovely dates. I felt like a teenager again - a huge whoosh of self-confidenc... Read more

  • Because I am worth it!

    3/6/2018 9:36:32 AM, by RAWCOOKIE

    and can afford it! Every month I postpone my haircut to 'next month' and I never have enough money. I am more likely to spend a few pounds on ebooks rather than save for a haircut! This month I have three family birthdays too. However, I did my sums, and decided that the haircut had becom... Read more

  • Seasonal Serendipity

    3/4/2018 8:50:51 AM, by RAWCOOKIE

    Today I popped over to Fly Lady and read the inspiration for Sunday. It was to make a date to meet up with a friend. Right. 220 So I texted my friend to see if she would like to go out for a walk with me - sky was blue, sun was shining etc. However, she replied that she'd love to, but had al... Read more

  • An Introvert's Perfect Day!

    3/3/2018 12:24:33 PM, by RAWCOOKIE

    I didn't realise how much I needed to have a complete day on my own! I spent four days with people - travelling and with family. Today I had an unplanned, but much appreciated, day to myself! I got up and went for a run at daybreak - no-one else much around. Total peace & quiet whilst enj... Read more

  • Self-care

    2/28/2018 3:06:08 AM, by RAWCOOKIE

    I am spending a few days visiting my son and daughter-in-law, and grandson. Baby is 11 months old and mum is pretty run down, bless her. They live in Bath and every time I go I've always wished I could go to Thermae Spa. But it's too expensive for me. This time, the aromatherapist who visits ... Read more

  • Being a good friend

    2/18/2018 9:47:21 AM, by RAWCOOKIE

    This morning I went to visit my friend, and before I went I texted her to ask if she'd like me to bring a snack - as it is Sunday and a day when I allow myself a few treats. My friend is health conscious too, and replied "don't worry about snacks" she said I could bring something if I wanted to... Read more

  • Still low on sugar

    2/17/2018 9:44:39 AM, by RAWCOOKIE

    It's the weekend - and I've not even made any of my ginger shortbread (with small amount of coconut sugar) - I've not wanted or had significant hits of sugar recently. I did have a small (24g) pack with two tiny cookies in it at the cafe last Wednesday - they were gluten-free, vegan, and sweetened... Read more

  • Greet the sun!

    2/16/2018 1:54:19 AM, by RAWCOOKIE

    One of the things that I love to do is to start my day by taking my coffee out to the doorstep and sitting quietly there listening to the birds, watching the sun come up. Just lately, because of endless rain, hail, wind and cold weather, I'd let this habit slip. But my Spark buddy keeps reminding ... Read more
